Mumbai: The entire nation has got divided on the ongoing or lets say the never-ending ‘nepotism’ controversy in Bollywood. The debate ignited by Kangana Ranaut on the popular chat show of filmmaker Karan Johar, where she'd accused him of being the “flag-bearer of nepotism.”

While several celebrities have given their views about it in the open, many chose to remain mum.

 

Falling into the latter’s category is Sunny Deol, who keeps a safe distance from controversies, was asked about the nepotism at the trailer launch of his upcoming film ‘Poster Boys.’

The actor, who, at the trailer launch admitted on keeping quiet to maintain space with controversies, gave a very unexpected response on the topic.

He said, “Woh kya hota hai? (What is that).”

Well, we are sure that the row, which has shaken the entire industry, must have not gone unnoticed by the Deols.

However, son of legendary Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, who is now taking the legacy forward by launching his son Karan Deol in the industry, acted as if nepotism was a foreign word to him.

 

Meanwhile, the younger generation like Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan have played safe, it's Ranbir Kapoor who accepted publicly that he is a "disarming product of nepotism."

He had further added, "Of course it exists. I’m sitting here next to you guys (because of it). I have a simple take on nepotism: I believe that my great-grandfather worked hard to give his children a platform, and so on and so forth. I became an actor because of my family, and because I got the opportunity, and the thing is you don’t really get credit for your success because everyone just looks down upon your success."

 

After reading Ranbir's take on it, Sunny Deol's response to nepotism sounds strange. Does it?
